Damian Cavaleri Comments on the Supreme Court’s Oral Arguments in Employment Discrimination Cases


The Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru and St. James Catholic School v. Biel, cases that will address whether the so-called ministerial exception should prevent two Catholic school teachers from bringing employment discrimination lawsuits against the schools that declined to renew their contracts. Mr. Cavaleri was quoted in SHRM (here) and Courthouse News (here) on the significance of the cases, stating, “On the one hand, there are the protections afforded by the First Amendment for religious organizations, but on the other, there are protections to employees to be free from certain forms of discrimination.”
